Y3 - Hope Class

KIRFs are the 'Key Instant Recall Facts' that children need to secure during their primary years. They include facts such as number bonds and times tables. They are particularly useful when calculating, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing but also underpin many other areas of mathematics.
Welcome to Hope Class!
Mrs Insa is the class teacher supported by Mrs Thomas, Mrs Edwards, Miss Starr and Miss Teague.
In Year 3 children are learning to become juniors.  We are encouraged to try our best to solve problems without a fear of failure.  We all know that we learn from our mistakes and that by recognising them we can become better learners.  Of course there is a lot of fun to be had on our journey further up the school.
Our class enjoy learning through a creative topic-based curriculum.  We have lots of exciting topics and we will be taking part in some outdoor adventures along the way.

This term we are enjoying reading 'The WishKeeper's Apprentice'. 

Wanted! A wishkeeper's apprentice.

When Felix makes a very special wish, he doesn't expect to be offered a job as an apprentice to wishkeeper Rupus Beewinkle. Now Felix must save the town's wishes from the wishsnatcher, who wants to destroy hopes and dreams everywhere.
